COVID-19 Guidance for Essential Businesses that Use or Store Hazardous Materials

The Hazardous Materials & Waste Program (HMWP) prepared guidance for Essential Businesses that are regulated by the HMWP to help comply with Health Order 19-07b requirements. The guidance includes recommendations for developing a social distancing protocol and facility-specific practices for auto repair shops, laundromats, funeral homes, gas stations and other facilities that are regulated by the HMWP.

Hazardous Materials and Waste Program

In the event of a potential hazardous materials emergency or other life-threatening environmental hazard, residents should call 911. SFDPH should not be contacted directly. SFDPH on-call specialists are only able to respond to emergency requests that originate from the San Francisco Fire Department, the San Francisco Police Department, or other local, state, or federal public safety agencies.

 

The Hazardous Materials and Waste Program is the state designated enforcement program in San Francisco for the Hazardous Materials Unified Program Agency (HMUPA). The Hazardous Materials and Waste Program implements six state environmental mandates and two local mandates. Staff inspect regulated businesses at least once every three years.
